I think Ken wanted to drive me over the edge. I was going stir crazy now I'm there. I started remodeling my work area, adding some walls and finally pitching "stuff" that I was going to use "some day". Getting boxes of things together for the meet at Kosh this spring.
Glad to see the site back up and that it was not a fatal whoops.
Loading slower than before with the IPhone 6 as well. Wireless laptop stuff working fine. Not really a problem...several seconds to load each new navigation now and used to be almost instantaneous. As long as I have access, I can wait... withdraws donÃ¢ÂÂt set in until I canÃ¢ÂÂt access site lol. Took 15 seconds to load this. Then 17 seconds to re-load to go back and edit. Wish my boat was this quick to W.O.T. .
Wow Bill, haven't seen you around here in ages. Must be digging out from the snow yet.
The site seems to load up normal for me, whatever normal is. I push a button and what I want instantly appears. Either that or I'm just used to things being a little slower. I guess I'm just old school yet. Old laptop, dumb phone, car radio with AM/FM, cassette, and a single CD slot. Love to listen to my Buddy Holley tapes and the Electric Prunes.
I thoroughly dislike tech stuff in cars, I miss the days when you could fix a engine problem with an 8" crescent and flat head screwdriver. I have timing lights that can't be used anymore, I did buy an OBD engine data reader with ABS though and that is probably already outdated.
If it takes 15/17 seconds to load up or switch pages for me that would be just another sip of coffee.
And yes, The admiral still writes letters and sends out greeting cards for birthdays and anniversaries.
I've been here, but just lurking in the weeds. I agree with you on the dumb phone ( with no texting ), car stereo, ect. As for the snow, it has been in short supply on this side of the state. I have only used my snowblower twice, and one of those was just to see if it still worked. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining being that I still drive for a living. As of last fall, that 115 Merc still pushes my Thompson right along.
Glad to see the site is back up ( I couldn't log on yesterday ) and it seems a little faster.
